The House of Israel is a phrase which gets repeated often but I never get many people explaining the small details behind the name.
The Jewish people are called the "House" of Israel. Is there a deeper meaning behind why we use the word "House" or is it simply the closest word we were able to find in the english language?
I've had people say that it's a phrase used to simply explain the Jews are from the line of Jacob. "The House of Israel" being a phrase to denote a familial line. The only reason I question that determination is that there are other examples of language being used to describe familial lines in the Torah. So this specific phrasing makes me wonder if there's a deeper meaning behind it.
Everything in the Torah tends to be extremely deliberate, so I always had this belief that there was a deeper concept behind why we refer to the Jewish people as the "House" of Israel.
